” Hope” mixed media by Deirdra Doan

Artist statement:

“Ten years ago after a lifelong love and practice of painting, a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts and an Art teaching credential, I became fascinated with the “mixed media” artist community. I learned the new techniques and has used them with great joy to produce works that express themes of beauty that are so important to her.

Working in this new style explored my inner intuitive voice and spiritual truths. The freedoms of the mixed media process has allowed me to tap into my subconscious. Portraits and figurative paintings are perfect models to express my dreams, spiritual growth and emotions,” Deirdra Doan, artist.
